Some of this is obvious for experienced players, I'll list them anyway for the benefit of those starting out. Will add as I learn/discover more.
Duh, camera angles are very important. You probably know this already, but will mention it anyway. Always bring an alignment stick, which will make pointing your camera much easier.
You may hit a cr@p shot, but video may redeem you by showing you you actually did what your instructor advised. That's a good thing, you're changing the
Not crazy about how it was named the Mario Cuomo Bridge (passed in wee hours in secret by his son), but official opening is tomorrow, in my mind, it'll be the new Tappan Zee Bridge. Maybe the Nyack - Tarrytown bridge?
Two bagels from your typical bagel shop, middle is a mini bagel from NYC's Fairway Market. Should have taken a profile photo, the bigger ones are almost twice as tall. That mini bagel is a regular bagel 25 years ago.
Disparaging remarks from some players on Sean Foley
Talk about hotels and points and yawn, boring.
No charging stations.
Momofuku here too, same as US Open (tennis).
Generally, students of the game hover around the short game area. One spectator struck up a conversation w/a player about pitching.
Haven't been to a tournament in awhile, radar everywhere.
You can park behind Starbucks, walk across the coliseum to the buses (10 minutes, just like the US Open - tennis),
There are the ones that look like chili peppers and the ones that taste like cotton candy are my favorite. These were at Trader Joe's yesterday:
They're ok, cotton candy grapes still my favorite. Sugar Crunch has like a "dry" taste to it, it's a little different from your standard variety green grape, sweeter and harder obviously. I'd still buy it again, because you don't see these everyday, but always on the lookout for cotton candy grapes.
All things bicycle here.
This guy installed a Loud Bicycle. It's basically a car horn on a bike. Folks, don't be surprised if you hear a car horn and a bike is behind you. He also vlogged his ride via his helmet cam. LOOK AT ALL THOSE BICYCLISTS! You can hear him use the Loud Bicycle at around 05:54. I wondered if the drivers even noticed in time.
It annoys me when you go to a range and you can't take face on video. It's one thing if the range is full and you can't place your camera because the stall in front of you is occupied. That's fine. It's when ranges build dividers that block an important part of the swing, impact, some build stalls that block nearly everything. It's twenty freaking seventeen, and video is available to the masses, hell, you could even say most people have high speed video available now. In H forking D. No, in 4 f*
When I got back into golf and started getting serious about the game 4-5 years ago I remember seeing a grainy, low production value video (looked like VHS tape quality) of some guy explaining this concept. At the time, it was really mind boggling for what seems like such a simple thing.
One thing that my instructor constantly reminds me about is to not "fake" my turn by moving hands/arms. I'm pretty sure this comes up once a lesson at least. I should probably bookmark this page and mimic th
